Well we are here in CUR! And to answer my own question, bud light in small bottles, and cleaned the grocery store out the other day, a whole 12 pack! Well we’re off to train our taste buds to a new flavor!

Mentioned in prior post, try Amstel Bright. Anxious to hear how you liked or disliked Curacao.

I also much prefer to drink light beers (Miller Lite), so much so that I will bring as much as I can with me when I'm going somewhere where I know they're hard to find

didn't know how hard they were to find in Curaçao when we went a few years ago...I got really tired drinking Presidente, so was so happy when I eventually did find some light beers in a small convenience store in downtown Willemstad, (can't remember if they were Miller, Bud, or Coors), so I cleared them out

another island where I never found any light beers, except for a few Red Stripe Lights, is Barbados, where we're now going for end of Dec/Jan, so I already have plans to carry a couple cases of Miller Lite down

luckily over the past 10 years or so, light beers are much easier to find in the caribbean, usually at least Coors Lite

What about Corona? Don't they make a light? (Says the person who hates beer, so I may not know what I'm talking about.....)

yeah, there are some non-american brands that make a "light" version, but the light isn't always available everywhere...(ie. Heineken Light, Corona Light, Presidente Light, Carib Light,etc)

it's been a few years since we were in Barbados, and i was hoping some light options had made their way down there by now, but forum posts on various message boards seem to say otherwise

Hello Carol, I will try to post a trip report when we arrive home. This is like a new penny, but NOT St. Maarten! In some ways good and some ways bad. It takes a little getting use to.

Hello Bob, the beer selection here is really bad, if your like us. We love our American beer! We have tried all the beer as mentioned above, and have struck to two, Corona and Presidente Light. That is as close as it gets, even the supermarkets have only have 6 to 7 selections to chose from, some in cases but most in singles. In fact the one isle for beer only has about half dedicated to the beer! Boy if we only liked Hiniken, we would be in hog heaven! More later!

Oh, I forgot to mention, we’re staying in a villa in Coral EST. Just north of Blue Bay. It is Villa Brillante, you can look it up on line if you wish. Thought that might help some.

Does the supermarket also carry wine and liquor like in SXM?
